Text editor with phone-like word suggestion/correction

As long as I've been a computer user, my typing skills are still very weak. I find it so much easier to write text in my (Android) phone, in that the editor suggests words based on what it thinks I'm trying to type, and when a space is entered it goes ahead and puts in whatever it looks like the word was supposed to be. Of course sometimes it's wrong, nevertheless I find that all in all I do better with that functionality. But I'd like to have that sort of editing available on my Windows laptop. Is there any such Windows text editor that can do that?

Yes, the idea is great.
Never thought of this.
But you can use spell checker for your PC.
Or Punto switcher which auto corrects what you are typing.
